Members of Underworld Injured at the Ejekt Festival

Tuesday, June 19th, 2007

According to Underworld’s Myspace page, members of the electronic band were injured due to rioting at the Ejekt Festival in Athens.

“Underworlds’ Rick Smith, Karl Hyde, Darren Price and crew were caught up in trouble reportedly caused by “anarchists” at the Ejekt Festival in Athens on Saturday night (16/06/07). Underworld were scheduled to close the festival that also included Madness and The Beastie Boys. It is reported that a group of around 30 masked individuals, armed with CS-gas, iron bars and baseball bats stormed the stadium at around 11.20pm as The Beastie Boys were performing. As cars were burned and property damaged, the stadium was evacuated. Underworlds’ Rick Smith was one of the injured. He was hospitalised for a time in Athens, but has now returned to the UK for further treatment. Several other people including security guards were seriously hurt.”

June 17th Catch of the Day – The Cinematic Orchestra

Sunday, June 17th, 2007

The Cinematic Orchestra has returned with the release of their latest album, Ma Fleur. I am a huge fan of this band due to their ultra chilled jazzy sound. Listening to a Cinematic Orchestra album is like being in a futuristic jazz lounge that only the cool people know about. They do an outstanding job of mixing their smooth sound of live instruments and synthesizers. Today’s catch is “Familiar Ground”, which features the vocals of 60’s soul icon, Fontella Bass. You might remember her 1965 R&B hit single “Rescue Me”.
